Nice to know the episode that really cemented women's roles in Star Trek as being nothing but walking incubators and insultingly unprofessional officers has been labeled as being a "Fair" episode. I cannot wait to kill this episode once we get to it on the "Episode a week" topic.
Woah there! Don't get your femministic panties in a twist. Generalize much? Women's roles on Trek nothing more than incubators and insulting and unprofessional? What about Kira, Dax, Torres, Janeway? These were strong and well written characters. Even Troi was given more respect by the TNG writers in later seasons when she finally donned a starfleet uniform and was promoted to Commander.
